Girls Like Us, a poem

Girls like us

have flowers and trees inside us,

belonging to a world more beautiful

than the one yet to catch up.


Girls like us

are told we need fixing,

then made to feel dependent

in the process of repair.


Girls like us

get to know our worth,

and once familiar

belong entirely to ourselves.


Girls like us

grow tired of your bullshit,

and can say no

whenever we please.
